Dinner April 12, 2022 - Speaker: Laura Stants

Our April speaker will be Laura Stants.   

Laura Stants caught the flying bug at the age of seven and started flight training as soon as she could, at 19. She’s a graduate of Vincennes and Purdue Universities, has accumulated 13,000 hours flight time over the last 31 years, and enjoys her jobs as a Flight Instructor and Corporate Pilot. Laura flies and teaches in a variety of aircraft, from light taildraggers to regular trainers to multi-engine turboprops to warbirds, one of the few women in the country to do the latter. Laura and her husband Steve own and operate a flight school in central Indiana with several locations, and Laura is also the founder of a 501(c)(3) charity organization dedicated to helping families whose children have a terminal genetic disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Laura provides insurance and checkout instruction in the WWII T-6 Texan, and is the primary pilot for rides, fly-overs, instruction, and airshow performances for Warbird Training Centers out of Kokomo, and for the Indiana Wing of the Commemorative Air Force. She likes to joke that she flies for hire so she can fly for fun, but the reality is that she loves it all. As you can see, for Laura, aviation is a lifestyle, not just a hobby or job—and one of her favorite parts of flying is being able to share that love of aviation with others.
